Immediately following “Watch What Happens Live,” this weekly, fashion-based talk show features Atlanta-based celebrity hairstylists Derek J and Miss Lawrence, and New York’s fashion maven Bevy Smith.

The most famous ZIP code gets a jolt of drama in the epic two-hour, cross-over premiere of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” season four and “Vanderpump Rules” season two on Monday, November 4 from 8-10pm ET/PT. Brandi Glanville, Yolanda Foster, Kim Richards, Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump are joined by two new housewives – London-born Carlton Gebbia and former Miss Puerto Rico, Joyce Giruad de Ohoven. To celebrate the centennial of Beverly Hills and meet other local business owners, Kyle throws a cocktail party at her home for the city’s Chamber of Commerce. She hires Lisa’s posh restaurant, SUR, to cater the event but in typical fashion, one of her servers begins talking back and Lisa has to send her home before the guests begin to arrive. At the party, Kyle tries to put aside her differences with Yolanda after last year’s explosive reunion, while Lisa struggles to keep tensions down between Brandi and Scheana. After the party wraps up, SUR staffers Stassi, Jax, Katie, Tom and Scheana head out to meet up with Kristen when serious tensions flare up. In an effort to mend her relationship with the group, Scheana invites everyone to her birthday party, but it doesn’t take long for catfights to erupt.

All that glitters is gold on “Shahs of Sunset” Tuesday, November 5 at 10pm ET/PT. During season three, Reza is faced with turning 40 and re-evaluating everything in his life from finally moving in with his boyfriend Adam to his rocky business partnership with Mike. Reza’s most dramatic challenge yet is before him as he is confronted with some personal demons he thought were long buried. Newly single MJ is in a “rebuilding year,” mending her relationships with former BFF, Reza and “Iron Mom” Vida. Becoming aware of her ticking clock, she begins to take a new look at her career and works to build up her confidence, but an unexpected conflict with GG leaves everyone wondering if the two will ever be the same. Faced with the choice between loyalties to his friends and doing what he thinks is right, Mike struggles with some serious life decisions in business and love. GG is working to redeem herself with her friends, mending bonds with her alienated family and making a go of it with a new boyfriend, but her fiery temper proves harder to bury than she thought. After a public battle with MJ, Lilly finds herself focusing on work as her friendships within the group are tested. Will the Persian Barbie realize she doesn’t belong after all? Our ever evolving Persian Pop Priestess, Asa, is in the process of reinventing herself… again and finds herself the unlikely water entrepreneur behind “Diamond Water.” Coming to terms with what it means to be a refugee through her art, Asa and the whole gang take an emotional trip to Turkey to reunite with long-lost family that culminates in a daring trip to see their Iranian homeland that leaves them forever changed.
